Title

State stops reporting PCR testing data

Description

"Health department spokesperson Ben Truman said in an email that the department stopped reporting PCR testing data on Feb. 15 because it was no longer 'a good picture of COVID information in Vermont.'”

"The department has reported PCR test data since March 2020 to provide a picture of how many Vermonters were seeking Covid testing and to contextualize Covid case numbers. More than 3.9 million PCR tests have been performed in Vermont since the start of the pandemic. At the peak of the virus in January 2022, more than 10,000 Vermonters were tested for the virus every day."
